any notice whatsoever. i beg you to not force me, my wife, my tenants and my neighbors to live next to a restaurant that will pollute our homes with kitchen exhaust with developlation and restaurant operation noise, especially without having given us an opportunity before this evening to register our concerns. this forum is not a level playing field in which for us to be getting our first bite at the apple on this issue and i really wonder why. the guy wants to have a restaurant, okay, follow the proper channels, give people notice and work with them to resolve problems rather than sliping it under the radar by manipulating the system and browbeating inspectors. i also believe that by interpreting the new restaurant ordinance in the manner it's been interpreted, my neighbors and i have been completely cut off from seeking review of this project before the permits were issued. i urge you to revoke this perform and -- permit and spent tens of thousands of dollars to be with you tonight and what we have discovered is that this thing has some serious problems and i don't think i shou
and gobble and rebuilt, which will be quite a while. begs a question. a lot of meetings you have, you don't necessarily want to include food and drink also. i go to meetings of the lakeside property owners association. we meet in the church over near stones town. and i would think of people like st. francis would, which i don't think they have their own meeting place, unlike forest hill. this would be a multitude of different groups who would take advantage of this. and the other thing we should be concentrating on, and this has nothing to do with this approval,v but we have a lot of land uses that are not appropriate. they're back to the '60s. i'm pointing out in particular wells fargo and some of the title companies where they have single level bran etches that are bigger than they need to be and there's lots of parking in the back. and while parking is important like anyplace else, it could be put below grade and as tim colin spoke about the 26-foot height limit is unrealistic because many of the older buildings in west portal are more than two floors. and then they put this limit in p
it's one of the attachments that includes what are beg bugs that look like bedbugs, but aren't them? so they are training materials and there they are. i think the only other thing to mention about this legislation is that it would require an additional inspector in terms of the certification required after violations. and that could be accommodated either by a salary ordinance request next fiscal year or temporarily or long-term reassigning existing staff and deprioritizing other activities. >> thank you so much, miss cohen. >> thank you. [ applause ] >> i do want to thank miss cohen and doctor bachi for working with our groups and recognize the department of building inspection who gave us feedback on this legislation as well. i have been notified by the clerk that we have an overflow room, room 250 and if you are here for another item and would like to give up your seat for folkses here at this item, the sheriff does not allow us to have people standing in the room. you will be able to watch the hearing and come back in for your item when that is up. i have just distributed a
comments to the clerk we could read the rest of them of the if you would like. >> i beg your pardon? >> if you would like to submit the rest of your comments to the clerk we can read them later. >> i will do that. >> thank you. >> good afternoon, supervisor. my name is richard may. and i have been a tenant counselor at the housing rights committee. you guys have probably seen me more than once. you have heard me talk more than once and the reason why is because this is a pervasive and ongoing problem. and you have heard a lot of testimony today about how it's underreported. all i can do is say absolutely underreported. i can't tell you -- i was at housing rights committee for a couple of years and at least one time a week somebody would come in with the problem of bed bugs. awn yet, when we asked dph for their numbers, they -- i'm not saying that their fault is finding numbers. what i'm saying is that the numbers always seem to be inquad yacht inadequate to the numbers that we got. the documentation in front of you, the revision that dph so graciously did. by implementing t
to be in the budget every single year, not to have the shelters come begging all the time for these things. one thing in conclusion, i have spoken with amanda freeh about >> implementing a program for all sheriff's departments to benefit from this. thank you for your time. i will be submitting a resignation letter with more recommendations. thank you. >> thank you and thank you for your service. any other public comment on this item? it's a lack of thought and lack of innovation regarding the committee itself, and i think it's -- when you look at the -- when you consider that jennifer freeden backen and the coalition on homelessness has had an monopoly on the appointees it goes to show that you the people on these committees have no dream or no vision of how to make these shelter systems better. the other thing too is that they keep talking about unfunded mandate. if they knew the history, or if they were there when that legislation was created and passed, they knew it was unfunded mandate. they knew it right out of box when they were sitting in meetings for 18 months and what makes it worse th
't know what the consequences and side effects are" and this is not as serious as that, but it begs the question to make sure that the language is understandable english and in addition i don't think you're limiting the mailers just to the three languages of chinese, english and spanish; right? >> no, i don't think so. >> so you're including whatever languages are used by the city and county of san francisco in the distribution of election ballots for
questions for one party and not the other. but these seem to be crucial concerns. they beg for a response from both sides and if i had had the opportunity i feel i could have answered every one of the director's points and then some. i want to make this clear. i don't think there was any conscious bias at work. i do think there is an unconscientious deference to authority. the opinion of cab drivers i have seen this time and again down through the years our thoughts, our opinions our arguments are simply not given enough attention or perhaps too arcane to be properly understood. i would hope -- he see my time is up. thank you. >> thank you. >> is there any other public comment under item no. 1? seeing none, we'll move to item 2, which is commissioner comments and questions, commissioners? >> i have a comment and, in fact i just wanted to make sure that we appropriately welcomed commissioner honda to the board. it is a pleasure now to have all five of us sitting here and i have a few remarks to introduce commissioner honda. darryl honda is a native californian who lived in san francis
this dispute about legitimate rape is i begged for the investigators to give me a polygraph test. they said they couldn't. so i'd like your help with getting a law passed on the federal and state level so that witnesses and those accused of sexual assault domestic violence have a mandatory polygraph or state of the art go to the f.b.i. on how you can detect lies. victims have theè:xáÑ opposite. while it might not be used in court it would help the investigators so they're not wasting time on false claims and so people9j%( ic-hat are harmed are helped. so i look forward to continuing our communication helping me resolve injustice in your county and helping you resolve injustice in mine. >> president chiu: thank you very muchajq . >> good afternoon, supervisors. and best regards to mayor -- to the mayor. did not moses give you the law? yet none of you keeps theejpz& law. why you looking for an opportunity to kill me? the crowd answered, you have a$ d demon. who is trying to kill you. jesus answered them i performed
the criteria for prop a and will beg funding for the future... and the bay shore station. four schools, elementary, middle and high school are near this main artery which needs to provide better routes for our children and youth. the project has enormous support for the residents in the park and three district and similar other districts in the west. for every 20 years this project has been identified as being the critical transportation project for the health and well-being of the san francisco southern region, the community plan will be complete. this relatively small project is more bang to the buck for criteria for funding, it will provide transit reliability and the over development area to the rest of the city it will provide more access and above the other projects proposed that were, the projects should begin priority due to the necessity and the long neglected community. i am familiar with the roadways not being funded by the transportation funds and which makes better sense when a roadway traverses the land and rpd funding has been cut over the years. rpd cannot possibly fund
at one time when then campment was there and to you know, like beggings and asking that you keep us in your good instead and keep us at jefferson when that renovation is complete. thank you. >> thank you. phillips and then debra king. >>> thank you commissioners i'll be brief my name is steven phillips i'm a photographer and a street artist in san francisco and have been on transportation since 1970 and used to live in jefferson and mason and walked down to the agency 'em cafe before it was a pier 39 and sat in the lumbar i can't remember the regard and i recognize how much this city has changed since then and it has made it one of the most remarkable water fronts and it certainly was not back then and i believe the street artists add a tremendous amount of vitality to this city and i'm also happy to be asked and answered question and is we get a dozen of them each day and when i'm across the street i love "where is market street," where is the ferry building," i can't tell you how many times i have been asked that question and i'm alms happy to point them in the right direc
is closed. commissioners? >> i'll entertain a motion. >> second. >> commissioner low had a question, i beg your pardon. >> i was going to make the motion to move but also say, you know, if you've ever gone to these games to watch the kids play, there's some really talented players out there, it's a great program, i like what you do for the kids out there and i was going to make the motion to approve. >> so, it's been moved. >> second. >> seconded, all those in favor. aye. thank you. >> we are now on item 8, the san francisco marina west harbor. >> good morning, commissioners, i'm mary hobson, project manager of the recreation and parks department capital, i in the p.m. are in charge of seeing the ren vaetion of the marina west harbor, this is a request to approve an increase in contract value for our consultants, construction management firm four leaf, four leaf has been on site overseeing the construction of the project since may of 2011, during that time, they have been responsible for the day-to-day oversight inspection tracking of the schedule and budget processing change orders and es
that mayor and staff boasts about that would have reprented this at the meeting? that begs the question are we headed to seven independent systemsalla email and who can predict that? the city is moving to replace the 25 year old famous system. if you like what you saw with the programs just mentioned think what you can look forward to. how much wasted money, time, and efficiencies have these and other snail paced projects cost? how much more will san francisco has to endure before serious change is made? i ask you as members of the board of supervisors should the city consider improvements to the structure and system that allows this waste to continue over and over? is it appropriate to consider the five year ict plan, which by the way was born through the 2010 efforts of the board of supervisors, and do you consider it a strategic plan as the office of the mayor is, when it is primarily in the current form s a project by project instrument and only where new money is concerned. what city wide values are incorporated that provide the backbone for a city strategy? where is the str
to nonstudent housing use. so, that beg the question of under what circumstances would the planning department need to be aware of that type of conversion. and i think the staff did a great job of pointing out there are only three limited circumstances. one is with the exemption from inclusionary housing requirements is taken advantage of. the other is the f.a.r. bonus, but that's only available in two of the c3 voting districts. -- zoning districts. the other is the exemption from the dwelling unit mixed requirement. that is a limited number of zoning districts as well. and i do appreciate that supervisor kim's office is clarifying the intent of the legislation in that regard, but quite frankly that's not the way it's currently drafted. a few other things i want to be clear as to what the legislation currently requires. it requires every entity that owns, operates or controls student housing to file an annual report with very extensive and proprietary information about all of its student housing, including existing student housing and on-campus student housing regardless of whether any new st

appreciate the homeless out reach team who deal with this over and over. and i beg you, please, do not allow tasers. thank you. >> thank you very much. next speaker. i want to ask the police department to learn the side step when someone is coming towards you, with a knife, you learn the side step. i'm disabled and 79, and can do the side step, tasers and guns are not just about equal, or just about equal in the damage that they do to humans, not acceptable, period. the side step. >> and someone is approaching you with a little knife do the side step, thank you. >> next speaker please? >> michael lion, san francisco, gray panthers are absolutely against the use of tasers by the police in any kind of way. i particularly object to the calling them non-lethal. what you are asking to do is to have a police officer make a snap judgment on the medical condition of someone that they are about to tase. i look fairly hail and hearty, but i have had a triple by pass, who is to make a judgment on me? are tasers necessary for this? i would say, no. psych tech, works in a job where we are working with me
